Really disappointed as they do not look after returning customers. It's as if they take your money first time reasonably and them try to fleeces you with ridiculous amount next time round will not be recommending the place to others.

I came here for dinner with a friend who had chosen the venue. Due to mixed reviews about the saucy dishes here I opted for a tandoori mixed grill with niramish and a peshwari naan. The grilled meat was decent, the nitamish nice but a bit oily and the naan was ok. I then had a fudge dessert which was... More

Spice Merchants is a relatively new and modern Indian restaurant right next to Westferry DLR. we went as a group of 12 and they fitted us in easily, although the dining area is that big. Food was decent enough, although some of our group said it wasn't particularly spicey and a couple of dishes were a bit bland. We had... More

Dined in for dinner last week and was thoroughly disappointed. The decor and ambience was weird and sparse (but trying to look fancy to match their not-so-budget prices) with terrible purple/blue lighting where we sat upstairs (why the strange lights??). On its website it prides itself with "elegant atmosphere and fine dining service", but I found this far from elegant... More

We were very disappointed with this restaurant. The ambience with light purple lighting was weird and service was ok. We went at the start of dinner service so not too many people were there but staff seemed overly keen to clear our plates in a hurry. The curries were bland. We ordered a lamb vindaloo and a chef special curry.... More

Maybe being a northerner, a Yorkshireman no less, has spoiled me when it comes to curries. You have no idea of the possible curries out there and how they can compare to the ones you're familiar with. In my experience, ordering a curry involves having a sensation of spice, or heat, unless you're one of these weird korma lovers. Granted... More

I love this place. I'm baffled by some of the reviews - particularly the 'Deliveroo' ones. Is Deliveroo really collecting from this restaurant? We eat here or get a takeaway about once a month and have consistently good food. If we eat in, the service is excellent and they treat our 7 year old daughter brilliantly. The portions are generous... More

Just received a delivery. The food was cold, containers half empty and really poor value. Tried to call the restaurant to resolve the problem and they didn't appear to care. Don't order from here if you are used to quality food.
